Overall it was a good show. However, as it was open air, the weather made us unbearable. A moment of raining, a moment of hot sunny. We are caught in wearing raincoat as it was raining during the waiting time. There after, it was sunny...More

With the Jade Dragon Mountain as the backdrop and five tiered platform as stage, it’s an impressive show despite the number of years it has been operating

This is the third time I am seeing this show and I still find that the 1 hour show is entertaining. But weather at this location can be a little unpredictable.

So zhang yimou created both this and the hangzhou west lake production. Plot is a little thin, but the production value is good. Beware in summer as it’s hot and the seating is outdoors

I love these kind of show, but really. Extremely overpriced, very old, boring. The show was fully booked and when I turned around to see people around me, they basically just dozed off. The only nice things to see is the background view of the...More

Heard so much about the creation by famous Chinese director Zhang Yimou. The show is staged in the open space 3,100m above sea level with Yulong Snow Mountain as it's backdrop. We decided not to give it a miss though the ticket is not cheap. RMB190...More

Nice show with the mountains in the backdrop. The minority groups were very enthusiastic in introducing their own special practices/ culture. Well choreographer and the performers were correct to emphasise that they are not actors, but sharing with us their culture through the performances. Only...More

Over rated because it's directed by Zhang Yimou. It's spectacular because of the Snow Jade mountain and the colourful costumes. I have seen better one in Tianmen Mountain in ZhangJiaJie -- under the starry night, great vocals and the bell chijmes which is truly magical....More

It’s a great show with some fabulous music. Set in the backdrop of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain it’s really grand and worth a one - time watch. You have to pay separately to enter the Jade dragon snow mountain area and tickets for the...More

I thought the Lijiang Impressions show was well worth the time and money. I don't speak an ounce of Chinese but the art of dance, emotions conveyed, and context (as well as the scrolling text in the corner which includes English) all helped me get...More

you can buy at the entrance hall, or contact your hotel for the group tickets which are much cheaper. They are able to arrange you into a group of 10.

There are a couple of shows a day but depending on the season. I caught the one at 11am. Tickets are available at the entrance, costs about Rmb200. Get there early as it can get really crowded as the amphitheater sits many.
